actctrl - configure IBM Active 2000 ISDN adaptor
actctrl [-d Driver-Id] action options ...
is used to setup the IBM Active 2000 ISDN
driver and for downloading the firmware into the ISDN
The use of actctrl
makes sense, if you are using an IBM Active 2000 card
- -d Driver-Id
- selects the S0 interface named by Driver-Id.
Driver-Ids are defined during driver initialisation. See act2000(4)
for a description of the syntax to be used for modularized and monolithic
driver versions. This option must be used to identify the S0
interface if more than one S0 interface is existent. If a single IBM
Active 2000 is used, it may be omitted. If using more than one card,
support for the other cards is enabled with the add action of
actctrl. Ids may not start with digits or small x,
because these values are misinterpreted as numeric parameters by
insmod. For loading the module, always the newest modutils
package should be used to avoid problems during load.
The following actions
may be given to actctrl
- add [bus[ port[
- enables support for an additional card in the driver.
bus is is an integer describing the bus-type of the card.
Currently, the only value which is allowed here is 1 meaning
ISA-bus. In the future, the values 2 (for MCA) and 3 (for
PCMCIA) will be available. port is either an integer describing the
base port, or the string auto which enables autoprobing. irq
is either an integer describing the IRQ to use, the string auto,
which enables grabbing of the next free IRQ or the string none
which enables polled mode for this card. id is an arbitrary string
for referencing the card at a later time.
- dproto protocol
[msn0,msn1, ... msn9]
- selects the D-channel protocol and defines MSN's if using
Euro protocol. protocol may be either the string 1tr6 or the
string euro. If selecting Euro protocol, a comma-separated list of
up to 10 MSN's may be appended. For defining an empty entry in this list,
use a dash.
- load firmware
- downloads the firmware into the card and starts operation.
Usually the images are located in '/lib/firmware/isdn'. The
firmware is named bip1120.bpl.
- is available if the program is configured using the
--enable-dump option only. The contents of internal driver
variables is dumped on stdout.
- This is the image of the firmware designed for both the
German 1TR6 protocol and Euro ISDN.
No bugs so far.
